Even though for a lot of you, the weather is getting cooler, we are heading into warmer weather, which means we will be enjoying a lot more meals outdoors on the braai (barbecue) and these kebabs are a perfect start to the season. Pair these with a Low GI Apple and Cabbage Salad. Yummy.
Low GI Chicken Kebabs
500g chicken breasts skinned and cubed
Onion cut into thick slices
Alternatively any vegetables of your choice
1 garlic clove crushed
65ml soy sauce
65ml lemon juice
½ small onion peeled and grated
- Place the chicken on the skewers alternating with the vegetables and place in a shallow dish.
- In a glass bowl, mix the garlic, soy sauce, lemon juice and onion and microwave on high for 1 – 2 minutes to cook the onion.
- Pour the marinade over the kebabs and marinate for 1 hour or longer if time permits.
- Braai (barbecue) the kebabs turning every 2 minutes until cooked. Alternatively, grill the kebabs in the oven.
